Embroidered Photographs - Ceili Seipke

At the turn of the century, many European postcards were embellished with decorative stitching. Recently, the craft has been reinvented by artists such as Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri and Dutch artist Hinke Schreuders who embroider photographic images.

My pieces are original images printed on Hahnemuhle Museum Etching paper then embroidered with floss, ribbon, beads and sequins.
